Should cosmetics with glycerin be avoided? This is one of the common questions you ask in the comments.
This question arises because glycerin somehow got into the black lists of harmful components of cosmetics and became a real hero of online horror stories.
The Internet attributes glycerin to an insidious property - to draw moisture from the deep layers of the skin and thus contribute to its dehydration.
The glycerol molecule works like a sponge - it really attracts water. But there is water both inside and out, and a glycerol molecule draws moisture from where there is a lot of it.
If the air humidity is normal, then glycerin will draw moisture from the air, thus moisturizing your skin. If the air is dry, then glycerin will attract moisture from the skin.
In other words, if the humidity is normal, you should not worry at all about glycerin in your cosmetics.
Therefore, perhaps the only case when it is really not worth using a cream with glycerin is if the air is dry and the glycerin is in the cream in second or third place.
In this case, we can assume that glycerin is present in the cream in a sufficiently high concentration and such a tool is not the best choice in dry air conditions.
But dry indoor air in any case adversely affects the skin condition, with or without glycerin. Therefore, humidify the air in the room!
Use a humidifier, hang wet towels on radiators. And where it is impossible, spray water around you and everything will be fine!
